Thank you.

It seems we both had the same idea!
The map on that page ties in almost exactly with an area of the same shape and size in Belle Vue, Manchester.
The Wiki map, for some reason, has been inverted but once rotated back again, the roads - Hyde Road and Kirkmanshulme Lane - fit exactly with the present day roads of the same name.
The zoo, of course, is now all gone replaced by a cinema complex and car parks. What else?!

Anyway, thanks for your interest and help.
Unfortunately, I don't remember anything about our visit. It would have been around 60 years ago, of course. I imagine my mother would have taken us on the train from Bradford, and I see that there is a rail link near to the zoo site even today.

A novice nun bursts into the Mother superior's office, "There's a case of syphilis in the nunnery!"
"Thank God for that" replies the Mother superior "we're almost out of the Beaujolais"

My wife just found out I've spent all our savings on Muppets memorabilia.
It's time to face the music.

My kids make fun of me for my bad memory but they won't laugh at Christmas when there aren't any eggs under the bonfire.
